Greetings,

News from the front;

Last night the Shogun 2 Heaven Clan's valiant warriors had earned it 11 provinces and thrust us into second place in the group, behind only the Ronin Warlords.


(The Clan Warfare map last night.)


I have just been online today and we are still second thanks to the efforts of our members, you're doing a fantastic job.


(The Clan Warfare map now.)


As you can see, the Ronin Warlords are very strong indeed and with only five days left it will be a struggle to knock them off top spot, but never fear, for if we continue as we are we'll be promoted anyway!

Hussar has done a good job having only just started, Daelon has joined and continued his winning ways from Empire, as has GnarlyHotep, newcomer Tom_Bear is winning glory, Liam the Spartan has earned his respect, Killathilla and Reckless Berry are currently our best generals having won us many battles.

There are some warriors still untested, others like myself who are victim to honourless quitters and plain old misfortune.

RecklessBERRY is named our player of the week, for carrying our win number since release date.

Well done everyone, let's keep the pressure up and capture some of those territories back. Between games not counting and not being able to find a match at all last night, I haven't been able to contribute much so far. Hopefully that will change. Right now I'm focusing on expanding my avatar's map control, but once that's changed, I plan on focusing a lot of effort on one or two territories at a time to build up clan point totals.

I noticed Ronin clan has one guy who carries it, who appears to not have the issue with battles not counting. Lucky them...

How come it shows my e-mail instead of my steam account name?

I'm pretty sure it does. I won't be home for a few hours; so I can't check, though. Also, I know that when I entered the clan info through the Shogun2 multiplayer interface, it showed BastWorshiper.

Ooh, at one stage we were up to 22. And then the RoninWarlords (specifically, this guy called CanCritter, who's on a 30-win streak) have blitzed us down to 15 at time of writing again.
Still, we're still in second! Keep it up!

I am currently out of Shuriken unfortunately.

I noticed this last night.

What does it say I have won-losed? Because I have played a lot more battles than it says. It just doesn't seem to be updating.

Yeah there is a problem with statistics not being recorded for some games at the moment, supposedly meant to be fixed in the upcoming hotfix for multiplayer. I would be more then 0\0 otherwise, with some provinces for the clan captured to boot. Quite annoying when that happens.

Not complaining - I'm down as 1-0 according to the screenshots above, when I'm really 1-1.

Has anyone worked out the actual date/time for the ladder closure?

Who's ranked #1 for 1v1's in STW2? This style of gameplay has changed how I play in so many ways.. Primarily how it's always live, players are constantly leveling up their units & generals which adds such a good/cool twist onto the gameplay. My current setup is garbage for 1v1's.. But I still have good luck with me, I think my current record is 10-2 but I could be wrong. See you folks around.

I just played my first ever multiplayer battle in any game...

And I WON!!!

I probably shouldn't have, but I'm excited all the same.

Unfortunately, there was such a tremendous lag between my attempts to issue commands and the response, I'm fairly certain I need a new rig before I can get much out of MP.

Also, I think I found the issue with my Steam name and fixed it. I'll check in a few minutes.

Just played against a fellow by the name of Tyr <=nFc=>

We played a battle with medium funds on lowlands, we started the battle and right off the bat he asked me:

"want a tip, noob?"

I replied:

"No I'm good thanks for your insight though good luck"

He didn't say anything back. His entire army consisted of loan swords and a few yari cavalry. My setup won't be revealed (:P). Anyways, he immediately charged and encircled my formation with his cav which was quickly broken, with his cav routing he sent in his main body of probably 10+ units of loan swords. As soon as the first contact with my formation was made I routed his first unit within a few seconds, which caused a chain route. I had his entire army routed from the field less then 20 seconds, when he saw that he had lost so quickly he simply said:

"**** U" and alt+f4'd out of the game and the win did not count.. So fair warning to you fellas out there who encounter this player, be forewarned there are sore losers in the community!

I know I play every battle to the bitter end. I just feel I owe it to the guy who beats me to let him play it out. I know I get pissed when the other guy just resigns and lets me have the battle rather than let me finish them all off.

That's just poor sportsmanship, and just foolish on his part. As a Japanese admiral said in WWII just before operation Sho-Go, "there are such things as miracles." I had one win all sewn up, 3/4 of his army was routing, and I was pursuing to shatter the remnants, when I realized that all the time I'd just spent microing my cavalry charges on one flank caused me to lose track of my general, when I hear what I very much did not want to hear...."OUR GENERAL HAS BEEN WOUNDED!"

Due to him fielding a good mixed army, and the bad timing of that happening while Iw as just finishing up a tough fought battle, caused a full reversal.

I both hate and love the loansword spam. Hate it because it's mostly boring and with a few bad luck situations, can snow you under, but love it because it's so easy to counter.

Unless the enemy has lots of good cav, basing your army off ashigaru doesn't work it seems. once you can get the charge in they tend to break fast.

On another note, I had a nice battle with someone. Some guy called Adamski didn't like that I used mangonels, and was moaning throughout the whole game about how unfair it was and how mangonels made low morale armies impossible, which confused me, especially since he fielded almost exclusively no-dachi as his ground force, with yari cavalry and samurai bowmen backing them up. He eventually rage quit, saying "f*** u man u aint gettin this on ur record" and he left.

The funniest thing was that he did not use his no dachi right and let me constantly shoot them and charge them down. Had he just run at me he'd have probably won. I only wish my recording had worked.

I've recorded every battle so far because I want to create a library of sorts once we've ironed out our issues getting Shogun 2 Heaven up and running. You guys should do the same.

Most of the battles I've been losing are because I haven't quite got down the cavalry charge. Sometimes I leave them concealed for too long, others spring them too soon.

I'm not sure, but didn't the season timer end yesterday? If we were promoted that'd explain the loss of territories.

And if the season hasn't ended yet, it will end today, so make a final push for honour and glory!

At what specific times should i expect for the majority of the clan members to be online? I was online and there was like 1 or 2 guys.

I live in Aus BTW. is there a specific day y'all come together and get the Shogun groove on?

So, I used to be really good at RTW. Like super duper good. But, guns and all turned me off so I didn't really play for 4 years.

That said, this fanciness of a online campaign map vexes me, though I'd like to smite some inferior websites' players if that is what is required.

Offering my services, your loyal former TWH staff member,
Cheesewiz.

Good to see you Cheesewiz. Welcome to the clan.

I'm usually online in the afternoon or evening (GMT), but if you're living in Aus you'll probably find Scipii (Killing Malkael on Steam) online pretty much all the time
